A Rare White and Sunny Break in December on the Island

After a very wet and grey fall, islanders were accepting that we were likely in for a long, damp winter. However we have recently been surprised by a stretch of first snow and now cold temperatures (thus keeping the snow around). While we aren't really well equipped for snow and ice out here, we are definitely appreciating the sunshine and treasured Vitamin D!

Of course there wasn't much sunshine for the two days that it snowed. Campbell River received up to 18 inches in places (including in Kate's neighbourhood).

The snow may stick around for another week or so, as we are expected to continue with the cold weather. There is even more snow in the forecast for Sunday! After that though it looks like it will warm up and be a more traditional green Christmas on the island.

It's a Coastal Lifestyle ... Live It!
